Buy Prints and Greeting Cards on Fine Art America


I did paint this painting for the “Anonymous Art Show”, a fundraising event here in North Vancouver where all paintings have to be 8×8 inches, priced at 100 dollars and signed only at the back so people can buy the art they like the most without knowing who did the painting.
Here are the steps I took:

pencil drawing on canvas

The first step is to make the drawing with pencil on canvas.

masking fluid on canvas

I am preserving white areas on the canvas with masking fluid.

working with liquid acrylics

I will work with liquid acrylics to start with, They behave a bit as watercolor but will adhere more on the canvas than watercolors would.

wet in wet technique

I am starting by painting the foliage, with the liquid acrylics diluted in a bit of water, using a wet in wet technique

waiting for the paint to dry

Here is the foliage all painted, I then have to wait for the paint to dry.

painting the trunks

I then start working on the trunks mixing washes of brown and blue in a wet in wet manner

adding acrylic layers

I keep on adding layers until I am satisfied with the colors

adding designs with markers

Now the fun part :)
I am adding designs with markers.

Next I am adding a bit of splatters with gouache mixed with watercolor.

    I love the patterns in this one, Sandrine. They really capture the textures in the forest.
